Botulinum Toxin is a protein that relaxes the facial muscles. It is used to smoothen out the skin, which also softens lines and wrinkles. It is injected into the facial muscle with micro-needles for best comfort and is a minimal discomfort procedure that does not require a numbing agent.
Typical treatment areas include; Glabella (frown), Frontalis (forehead) and Obicularis Oculi (crows feet). A brow lift can also be achieved to reduce hooded eyelids and provide a higher arching brow. A brow lift is two areas of botulinum toxin, treating the Glabella and Frontalis muscles, with a specific injection technique. Please note that the forehead cannot be treated as a single area, as the frown muscles need to function in harmony
Additional areas can be treated, such as, the lines on your nose (bunny lines), gummy smile (treat overactive top lip), downturn smile (muscles that pull the smile in a downwards direction).
Specialist botulinum toxin is available to treat the masseter muscles of the jaw. This is to slim down the jawline for a more v-shaped lower face. This can also help with tensing of the jaw if you are a teeth grinder and struggle with tension in this area.
The Nefertiti lift is a targeted botulinum toxin treatment for a tighter neck and jawline. This treatment can also benefit patients with predominant neck bands that want to reduce their appearance and activity.
